Item_ID: AFC 2016/055: SR084 Joan Chandos [Joan Baez]; The Boston University Glee Club, 1959
Rack number: RXK 4267
Extent: 1 sound tape reel (polyester; Side A: 00:48:22, Side B: 00:48:22) : analog, 7 1/2 ips, half track, mono ; 7 in.
LC engineer's note: This tape is very much a hodge-podge of seemingly unrelated airchecks, recordings of records, and *possibly* a bit of a true live concert sourced from either a radio broadcast or a commercial recording (the first segments of Side A). The body of both sides of the tape is an undated aircheck or airchecks of live Boston Pops broadcast(s). On Side B, the unrelated content continues until about 00:32:07. The segment with Joan Baez starts about 00:34:06, and appears to be a live in-studio performance and interview on an unidentified folk music radio program. She is referred to Joan Chandos in the interview segments. There are no station ID's nor does the host give his name. The recording is very good though her third song is incomplete due to the tape running out. The aircheck continues on SR085.
Archivist's note: Side A is content unrelated to the collection. Baez sings and accompanies herself on guitar.
Scope and content: Songs performed by Joan Chandos (Joan Baez): "Karev Yom" [Israeli; roughly translates as "The Day Draws Near"]. Then the disc jockey plays "Drill Tarriers Drill," a recording by the Weavers, followed by "Fi-Li-Mi-Oo-Re-Ay" (also called "Paddy on the Railway"), also by the Weavers. Interview segments are interspersed between songs. Next songs performed by Baez: "Take This Hammer" and "Black Is the Color" (also called "Black is the Color of My True Love's Hair"). Original ID number: T-8.

Rack number: RXK 4268
Extent: 1 sound tape reel (acetate; Side A: 00:45:15, Side B: 00:45:15) : analog, 7 1/2 ips, half track, mono ; 7 in.
LC engineer's note: This lasts until 00:18:55. After that, the rest of the side is a recording of Side 2 of The Kingston Trio's first LP. Side B consists of the full Kingston Trio LP "from the Hungry i" and two cuts from George Lewis.
Scope and content: Songs performed by Joan Chandos (Joan Baez): Little Moses; The Troubadour Song; Emmett Till; LaSalle Gardens; Banks of the Ohio; Scarlet Ribbons. Continued from SR084, Side B of the Joan Chandos (Joan Baez) interview and the aircheck from an unknown radio show and station. Original ID number: T-11.
